The new link for which is

For SMF 1.1.x ONLY

Enables you to show the pagerank of urls in posts using either

o Admin setting [via Admin > Features & Options]
- Enable PageRank on Profiles (for users websites)
o BBCode Button
o Caches pageranks in the database for 7 days
- For faster performance (and since PR changes very rarely)
- Automatically clears old pageranks for efficiency
o Supports Languages
- English/English-utf8
- English_British/English_British-utf8
- Turkish/Turkish-utf8 (Thanks to Kapadokyali)
I welcome translations for other languages. Please post the translated language strings in the Support Topic.

Simply install the package to install on the SMF Default Core Theme ONLY.

Manual edits will be required for ALL themes (other than SMF Default Core Theme) which have a custom Profile.template.php and/or Post.template.php.

To add the BBCode button to the Post.template.php (IF the theme has a custom Post.template.php)
Open Post.template.php
'list' => array('code' => 'list', 'before' => '[list]\n[li]', 'after' => '[/li]\n[li][/li]\n[/list]', 'description' => $txt[261]),
'pagerank' => array('code' => 'pagerank', 'before' => '[pagerank]', 'after' => '[/pagerank]','description' => $txt['pagerank_desc']),

To add the PageRank to members profiles for their website (IF the theme has a custom Profile.template.php)
Open Profile.template.php
<td><a href="', $context['member']['website']['url'], '" target="_blank">', $context['member']['website']['title'], '</a>
// Show pagerank of Members Websites on their profile (if enabled)
if(($modSettings['usepagerankonprofiles']) && (!empty($context['member']['website']['url'])))
echo pagerank($context['member']['website']['url']);

echo '

You will also need to place a copy of the pagerank.gif in the images/bbc folder of EACH of your themes (eg Themes/{themename}/images/bbc)
(Note the rest of the images are called from the images folder of the SMF Default Core Theme)

If your theme has its own versions of the language files Modifications.english.php and/or Modifications.english-utf8.php, OR if your using a language other than those supported (listed above) by the mod then you will need to copy the language strings into each custom version of those files.

ADD BEFORE (and translate as necessary the language strings)
$txt['usepagerankonprofiles'] = 'Use PageRank on Profiles';
$txt['pr'] = 'PR:';
$txt['pagerank'] = 'PageRank #';
$txt['pagerank_desc'] = 'Google PageRank';
$txt['pagerank_outof'] = 'out of 10';
